Claim of US Patent No. 10,561,048

1. A method for forming a body comprising a mixture of a matrix and conductive particles having a low aspect ratio, the method comprising:a) providing a mixture comprising a matrix capable of being stabilized and conductive particles;
b) aligning the conductive particles into conductive pathways by applying an electric field between alignment electrodes, wherein the electric field is in the order of 0.1-20 kV/cm;
c) stabilizing the mixture, and
d) totally or partly removing the matrix from the mixture, after stabilizing,
wherein the conductive particles are at least one infusible conductive particle, a metallic particle, a metal oxide particle, and a colloidal metal particle.
